  • A retired radio DJ ends up in a tense battle of wills with a nefarious businessman and his villainous doctor henchman after he hurts his back and is sent to live in a nursing home. As a young boy, Rex Page (Ernest Borgnine) always dreamt of being a cowboy. Decades later, his career in radio has dried up, and an injury lands him in the Rancho Park nursing home. There, local tycoon Mr. Walker (Barry Corbin) and scheming Dr. Dominguez (Tony Plana) plot to keep the elderly residents controlled and confined. When the Latino staff at the rest home learn that Rex once met the legendary singer Vicente Fernandez, however, the tides of power gradually begin to turn in his favor, leading to a showdown with Walker and Dominguez.
